ALL XP Pros...


I am working in an environment where all workstations have the same SID
because SYSPREP was never ran on the workstations...will there be issues to
this deployment of and the clients?

Please provide Microsoft documents and link if possible thanks...

I know duplicate SIDS should not be used period, but I need documentations -
also is there a documents that says MS does NOT support duplicate SIDs in an
evironment - thanks.

"When you clone a Windows NT/2000/XP installation to many computers,
the destination computers have the same SID and computer name as the source
Windows installation. Because Windows NT/2000/XP networks use each computer's
SID and computer name to uniquely identify the computer on the network, you must
change the SID and computer name on each destination (client) computer after cloning."

In the future if you want to avoid syspred, remove the workstation from
the domain before imaging.
